The Lungs are paired organs in the chest that perform respiration. Our lungs do a vital job. The maximum expiratory flow-volume (MEFV) curve is a sensitive test of respiratory mechanics. It has been shown that lung heterogeneity plays an important role in respiratory system pathology and influences results of lung examinations. The first major advance in understanding expiratory flow limitation of the lungs came with the description of isovolume pressure-flow curves. These curves documented the existence of a volume-dependent limit to maximal expiratory flow and led directly to the description of the maximal expiratory flow- volume (MEFV) curve. This study is focused on the review of various mathematical models for lung mechanics, which provides the basis for the most clinically applied methods of lung mechanics analysis.
